Property Management – Landlords
We are proud to offer to landlords, one of the most comprehensive and hands-on property management services on the market. Our wealth of experience enables us to manage all complex aspects of residential and commercial properties. We believe that good property management is about attention to detail, transparency and effective communication. We are here not only to let your property through our specialised and leading letting department but to ensure your property is maintained and managed as efficiently as possible, to give you, as the landlord ultimate peace of mind. Meeting your requirements is our core focus. We ensure that we offer appropriate, high quality and affordable levels of service to landlords. We also tailor our property management agreements to the landlord’s specific requirements and offer some of the most competitive management fees in the industry to ensure that you, as a landlord, maximise your return on your investment.
We recognise that property management is a people industry – we are big enough to cope and small enough to care about personal service to landlords. This is where we stand out from the crowd. In fact, we end up becoming close friends with our clients, including those who may reside overseas, who make it a point to visit us each time they are on the island. We work with a wide range of landlords to provide dedicated property management services backed by the experience, expertise and focus of our 37-year history and unparalleled service to the local real estate industry, operating in the forefront of both the sales and lettings markets.
We understand that the need for you as a landlord or landowner and property investor to generate maximum returns from your asset is of utmost importance to you, our services and specialist advise is invaluable for doing this. We cover all areas and asset types from large-scale villas to rural houses of character and modern apartments of all sizes, as well as commercial property. Our team provides advice and management services for single assets or full portfolios. We do not distinguish between clients with larger or smaller portfolios. In fact, the vast majority of our clients own a single property which they ask us to look after. Our focus is on maximising investments for landlords.
Once a client engages our management services, we do everything from organising inventories and arranging for properties to be cleaned pre-tenancy and on-demand; handling collection of rent or mail; calculating water and electricity bills and bringing utilities up-to-date; handyman, locksmith and repair services; right through to handling deposit negotiations once a tenancy has come to an end. We liaise with utility suppliers and arrange repairs, maintenance works and safety reports on clients behalf as well as organise payments of outgoings such as service charges. We also have senior associates within our letting department who possess the specialist skills to negotiate the renewal of a lease agreement on the landlords behalf, who can provide advice on the current market trends and rent levels, provide comparable evidence and arrange a re-appraisal of one’s property where appropriate and to negotiate with the tenant on the landlord’s behalf.
